Every manufacturer offers a large SUV because they're the definitive status symbol that most drivers aspire to.

However, just because they're popular, that doesn't mean they'll be dependable. The best will provide virtaully fault-free driving with few repair bills, but the worst could leave you without wheels for more than a week and landed with a repair bill of more than £1500.

To help you choose the most dependable large luxury SUV, we asked more than 14,200 people to tell us about any faults their cars had suffered during the past 12 months, how long the problem had kept the car off the road for and how much they'd had to pay to get it fixed.

The results of our reliability survey can help you identify the most and least durable large, luxury SUVs aged four to 10 years old.

Here's our round-up of the best and worst performers in the large and luxury SUV car classes.
